Kirk Hiner has been covering Apple products on the web since 1998. In between writing reviews and covering Apple product news, he has written the novel "Mowin' the Heavenly Lawn" and co-authored the play "Spoon Millionaires." Kirk currently lives in the Mogadore with his wife and three children, where he's always never finishing his next book, playing a lot of video games, and going on and on about Japanese rock bands, the Seattle Seahawks, and Flash Gordon.
The Swivel Screen Portfolio for iPad Air will by no means render your laptop irrelevant, but it may help you replace it with your iPad for a few more tasks. FAVI Entertainment’s Swivel Screen Portfolio Case features a built-in Bluetooth keyboard, but that’s no big deal; many cases do these days. What’s different is that keyboard attaches to a rotating stand that makes it easy to position the iPad for the best viewing angle.
Tengami is a unique and absolutely beautiful puzzle game for iOS that is over far too soon. The fact that you can complete it in an hour or two is largely responsible for this, but honestly, I would’ve disappointed to see it end if it had taken me 20 hours to get there.
Agent 47 is a genetically engineered contract killer, and those contracts now involve some work on the Macintosh. Feral Interactive has announced that the stealth-action game Hitman: Absolution – Elite Edition will be released on the Mac this spring, challenging players “to perform assassinations in creative ways.” Which is good, because the last thing we need is a genetically engineered contract killer becoming complacent with his work.
I’ve stated before—only half jokingly—that I’ve never seen a movie that couldn’t have been improved by a prolonged sword fighting skeleton scene. I was thinking of Hollywood films, but this belief now includes your wedding videos, cruise vacation recaps, or whatever you happened to film on the way to school this morning. FxGuru: Movie FX Director not only adds skeletons, but also U.F.O.s, dinosaurs, ghosts, cockroaches, elephants…even falling pianos.
I am looking forward to this summer’s release of Godzilla the way some people look forward to their wedding, retirement, or being released from a Turkish prison. The first time I watched the trailer, I only then fully understood why men have sons. But I’m not looking forward to the inevitable movie tie-in app. This is because it will not be good. At all. Here’s why.
Knock-Knock for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch charges players with surviving in a dilapidated cabin, keeping it maintained while preventing the sanity of the Lodger from unraveling completely. Seek out the key to ending the Lodger’s ordeal, and you just may survive the night. May…
We at AppleTell are continuing our preparations for Macworld/iWorld 2014 at the end of the month. For instance, Aaron Kraus and I are currently debating floating vs. pacific time in our shared iCal calendar for show floor meetings. No matter which setting we end up using, Ergotron will be on the list with their WorkFit workstations for desktop and laptop computers.
This weekend’s 70% off game sale at GOG.com features some popular favorites from years past. Who can forgot hits such as Stronghold and Stronghold Crusader? Where were you the first time you played Space Colony? And remember all the fun you and your friends had when Evil Genius came on? With the GOG March Gaming Medley, you can relive these wonderful times in the privacy of your own living room! Or wherever your computer is!
In my mind, Darkseid’s super power will always be that when you squeeze his legs together, his fists move. Of course, in my mind, that’s the same power they all have, because everything I know about superheroes I learned from the Kenner Super Powers toy line. Hopefully, you know more, and will know what to do with the Darkseid character that’s now available exclusively in the mobile version of Injustice: Gods Among Us.
Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic is still one the best games you can use to show off your iPad’s (or even iPhone’s) gaming capabilities. And with today’s v1.2 update, you get to show off something else, too: controller support. (Of course, don’t show the controller off to Android users…their devices have been supporting gamepads for quite some time, and they’ll just laugh at you.)
When you turn on your iPhone and swipe to reach the password screen, iOS 7 creates this nifty blurring effect for your wallpaper, making it easier to read the text on top of it without throwing a boring flat color behind it. That blur effect is actually very easy to create yourself with an app called Blurify, and here’s how to do it.
Signal loss is an issue inherent in all but one aluminum frame I’ve ever tried, to varying degrees. designed by m admitted to 5 to 10% signal loss in the original AL13, which is not a huge issue in my immediate area, but it certainly could be elsewhere. And this why they’ve launched a Kickstarter campaign for the AL13 v2, which is designed specifically to eliminate signal loss.
